As a long time fan of Underoath, I was very distraught to hear the band was breaking up. This band has affected me in ways that I can't express with words. Their music has been with me through some of the hardest times of my high school and college years. I have seen the band six times by my count, and I have spent countless hours listening to their music and countless dollars on merchandise and albums. I have single-handedly recruited multiple longtime and loyal fans and I am extremely disappointed in the lack of dates on their farewell tour. There isn't a single one within driveable distance of me. Not only are overseas dates missing, but even important parts of North America.
We as fans realize that the band members have lives outside of music, but surely they can add 5-10 more dates to hit the other corners of the country and some international places. Maybe this isn't even within the band's control, and if that's the case, we beg of whoever is in charge of this to allow an extra few dates on this tour. There isn't even a single date in Ohio, New England, or California which are well known heavy music scenes in the US.
Underoath...we love you, and we want to say goodbye. Please extend your tour dates, or go on a separate tour to hit other parts of the country and international areas with huge fan bases.
